How can Orbera® benefit you?
Orbera® is an FDA-approved balloon weight loss system. It helps you learn portion control and healthy eating habits while not requiring invasive surgery. With this system, patients can lose up to three times the amount of weight they would lose with diet and exercise alone.
This outpatient procedure only takes about 20 minutes. To start, we’ll mildly sedate you to ensure you’re comfortable. The Dr at Triborough GI will then insert a deflated gastric balloon through your esophagus, into your stomach. Then, he’ll use a syringe to fill the balloon with sterile saline until it’s about the size of a grapefruit.
For the next six months, the balloon remains in your stomach. The space it takes up reduces the amount of food you can eat, which trains your brain to know when your stomach is full, so you won’t overeat.
